commentator suggesting the president's mission now is to reverse everything that ronald reagan put in place 30 years ago. our panel debates that in a moment. >> this was really obama unbound and i think what is most interesting is that obama basically is declaring the end of reaganism in this speech. jenna shared her recipe with sharon, who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the recipe... ohhh.

read in our "wall street journal" today, we have an excerpt from ronald reagan's inauguration. the job market was really expanding back in. dagen: steve, great to speak with you. take care. connell: we brought in chief market strategist from america financial and. the question today is can this continue, david? >> i do not think it will continue at that case. you have the federal reserve doing everything in its power to make sure that this economy stays on track. that is number one. number two is inflation is well behaved. you also have corporations that have deleveraged their balance sheets. and you now have the consumer coming back as well. when you add all of this together, the improvement in the energy sector, foreign economy starting to do a little bit better, i think the stock market do well in the second term. just not as good as the first. connell: what if they mess it up again in washington? we will go into another round of negotiations, maybe we won't, on the debt ceiling. maybe we go over one of them. you have to take that into account. how does that change your odds taking
, we must act. it's funny, gretch mentioned ronald reagan, he once famously said the nine most terrifying words in the english language are, i'm from the government and i'm here to ten. essentially that's what the president said yesterday. if you're in the middle class, i'm from the government and i'm here to help you. >> brian: bill clinton and ronald reagan said the year of big government is over. essentially in different ways. so this is the president. the president said, let's focus on rights. he have talked about seneca falls. selma, referring to the 1965 civil rights movement, and stonewall where the gay rights movement took root in 1965. and also he talked about we're focusing again on the environment. i guess green technology. what he says is climate change, which is interesting because he's talking about gay rights. he probably wouldn't be talk being that if joe biden didn't ram rod him into it on a sunday comment that popped up. and with green technology, that's been a disaster when he ram rodded t the stimulus money. i hardly think it's settled scientific collective
about second term curses that have brought down richard nixon, hampered ronald reagan, bill clinton. people forget reagan was able to get tax reform, bill clinton was able to get a balanced budget. certainly a big opportunity for the president but fully aware in the white house, a lot of challenges ahead as well, jenna. >> certainly not challenges for a father. nice to see the first family, ed, and how much the girls have grown up over the last four years. what we're looking at for the president tomorrow besides the hair styles and what everybody is wearing at the inauguration is what is he going to say? what will be the address to the nation tomorrow? you mentioned some policy challenges ahead. what are you hearing about tomorrow's address and how that might set the table, if you will, for the years to come? >> true. what i'm hearing is the state of the union address next month is really where the president will go with a deeper dive on policy, whether it be gun control, immigration reform, the debt ceiling debate. tomorrow's broad scene. his senior advisor will talk about bringing

solar panels on the white house, that ronald reagan later tore down. but jimmy carter's vision of government is getting a little bit more of a second chance, i think, with obama's second speech. >> reaffirmed, perhaps, even. >> luke, you've covered the hill. what was the hill's response, yesterday, to the president's speech, to the events of -- >> before president obama had even left the luncheon, there was a statement out from cathy mcmorris rodgers, number 4 in the house gop conference who basically said, okay, there's a lot of nice words in this speech, but we would like to see some literal action. and the literal action is persuading the senate to pass a budget so we can move forward on fiscal issues. so i think you'll see some folks on the republican side, say, it was a beautiful moment for their country. obviously, they'll understand the significance of having an african-american president sworn in for a second time. but today, there was a press conference at 5:00 p.m., which is the first time we heard from house speaker john boehner since december 21st. i'm sure that the
to be friends with the opposition are gone. he just hasn't been able to find that special bond like ronald reagan had with tip o'neill on capitol hill. >> reporter: the president reminded reporters on monday he did play a friendly round of golf with house speaker john boehner in 2011. >> i like speaker boehner personally. when we went out and played golf, we had a great time. >> reporter: but mr. obama was quick to add it didn't help to solve the budget impasse. will things be any different when the president begins his second term next week? he seemed to hint they might be. >> now that my girls are older, they don't want to spend as much time with me anyway, aisle probably be calling around to look for somebody to play cards with me or something because i'm getting kind of lonely in this big house. maybe a whole bunch of members of the house republican congress want to come over and socialize more. >> reporter: and if they don't -- >> remember, barack obama has over 50% public approval rating. congress is around 17% on a good day. so the blame here may not be on
, the turning point of this country was 32 years ago, almost to the day, when ronald reagan made a statement in his inaugural address that the solution to the government -- the government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem. if you believe that, do not the president, for heaven's sake. you had a president who was inveighing against government. presidents of both parties have basically continued this policy. we have no active programs to solve any of these problems. we know what the solutions are -- we're not going to pay for any of them. i'm telling you, sadly, it is getting worse. no matter what the agreement is in two months. we are squeezing -- the rich have gotten their way. the corporate sector has gotten their way. they do not pay. there is no money for this preschool. all the sectors alone and operate the congress, so we have lower-priced systems, exactly what you say -- overpriced systems, exactly what you say, schools that do not work. we have the least social mobility of many high-income country in the world now. we have kids locked into poverty like no o
